Human well-being and survival depends on the health of nature, plants, and animals. For us, caring for nature is a way of being and doing. We believe that every one can influence climate change, the biodiversity of nature and the survival of all endangered animal species. We believe that we can influence the quality of life for the human and animal generations that follow us.
Participating in the protection of forests and nature is easy. You can, for example:
Uudenmaan Seuramatkat Oy has signed the Helsinki Declaration, committing us to act for sustainable tourism.
The Helsinki Declaration is a commitment by Finland’s tourism industry to sustainable development. The declaration is a company’s commitment to start developing its operations in a more sustainable direction. By signing the declaration, companies and organizations commit to principles based on which they implement their own concrete measures.
The Helsinki Declaration process is coordinated by the Finnish Travel Agency Association SMAL.
Uudenmaan Seuramatkat Oy is participating in the EU’s COSME-funded SUSTOUR project in 2022 – 2023.
The Sustour Carbon management program, or carbon dioxide emissions management program, comprises guidance, training, and certification. The project is produced by Travelife for Tour Operators and Travel Agencies. The training system is tailored for travel agencies and tour operators, with the aim of minimizing carbon dioxide emissions in our travel packages. The ultimate goal is 0% carbon dioxide emissions in travel packages by 2030.
In Finland, the project’s partner is the Finnish Travel Agency Association SMAL.
The Glasgow Declaration emphasizes the urgent need for action to combat climate change in the tourism sector. Its aim is to reinforce commitments that support global goals to reduce emissions by half over the next decade and achieve Net Zero emissions as soon as possible before 2050.
